Student-Run Success (PLV)

News Story

There are so many student-run businesses on the PLV Campus; from a late-night café to a mini convenience store to the most recent health food pit stop, Setters are what keep #PaceU running. Check them out!

The Center for Student Enterprise (CSE) initiates and coordinates student-run businesses on the PLV Campus. Business students interested in venturing into the field of entrepreneurship get an exclusive opportunity to meet with like-minded peers and professors from the Lubin School of Business. They gain invaluable managerial experience, see their ideas come to fruition, and manage real businesses—all thanks to the CSE. In fact, more than 80 Pace students work for the five businesses coordinated by CSE!

These are all the student-run businesses currently operating on the PLV Campus. Want to learn more about how they operate? Check out the CSE website or contact Kathy Winsted, PhD, the director of CSE, via phone at (914) 773-3905 or by sending an email.
